Learning Disability Testing
Learning disabilities are neurologically-based processing problems. These processing problems can interfere with learning basic skills such as reading, writing and/or math.
They can also interfere with higher level skills such as organization, time planning, abstract reasoning, long or short term memory and attention. Learning disability testing can help guide parents to get the help their child needs.
Learning Disability Assessment
Assessment for learning disabilities includes the following:
Full IQ testing
Testing of Academic Achievement in the areas of reading, written expression, and math skills
Testing of psychological factors, such as depression, anxiety, mood dysregulation, anger, and self-concept, that can negatively affect the learning process
Testing of other neuropsychological disorders, such as ADHD, that can negatively affect the learning process
Information about behaviors gleaned from key people who have observed the child in both the home and school settings
